Senate Republican leaders say a proposal to use tax credits to funnel donations into scholarships for low- and middle-income students to attend private schools is a priority for them. And they're hoping to make it the subject of negotiations with Democrat Gov. Tim Walz and House Democratic leaders late in the session.

Senate Taxes Chairman Roger Chamberlain is making another run at passing the proposal, which was dropped in 2017 amid a veto threat by then-Gov. Mark Dayton.
